This is unacceptable, scary and if true, dangerously corrupt. If true, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and his Director of Secret Service Mark Sullivan should be immediately called before Congress to testify. And I mean IMMEDIATELY, as in today, as in right now.
Americans should ask - what would Bush, Paulson and friends have to gain if something were to happen to Obama, why this order to drop his security was given, and who gave it.
Obama is running against the entire military industrial complex, the Clintons, the Bushes, hundreds of years of racism, the insurance companies, Rove and Rush, and more than a handful of crazies. And yes, he's also running against the GOP establishment, led by Paulson and Bush.
Until he can have full faith in his Secret Service protectors, or better yet a private security force of his own, he needs to go into hiding. He is not safe, and nor are we.
Police concerned about order to stop screening
DALLAS -- Security details at Barack Obama's rally Wednesday stopped screening people for weapons at the front gates more than an hour before the Democratic presidential candidate took the stage at Reunion Arena.
The order to put down the metal detectors and stop checking purses and laptop bags came as a surprise to several Dallas police officers who said they believed it was a lapse in security.
Dallas Deputy Police Chief T.W. Lawrence, head of the Police Department's homeland security and special operations divisions, said the order -- apparently made by the U.S. Secret Service -- was meant to speed up the long lines outside and fill the arena's vacant seats before Obama came on.

The only thing that can stop Barack Obama from being the next President of the United States might be Henry Paulson and the US Secret Service
